This guy took his whole PS3 apart, it's pretty cool to check out how the PS3 looks on the inside. The heatsink is pretty sweet, here's a pic

No, I think that is actually RSX. The mem being so close on it is why I say that. I don't remember EE+GS being like that.

EDIT: Yea it is RSX. If you look at the pic before they took off the heatspreader it has the same things around it.

That is the Nvidia RSX. You can tell by the closely coupled memory modules. The internal design of the PS3 looks impressive. The heatsink/fan combo rivals the Xbox360 design. Hopefully not to many bugs will arise.
